Back with another 4-3-2-2 i won, ended up going esper again.

Event #: 282086
Time: 4/5/2009 7:21:32 PM
Players:
scuz39
Alex the Wizard
Benn
--> ElementalMox
ludoM
RM6184
SecretSauce
Jstark

------ ALA ------

Pack 1 pick 1:
Ridge Rannet
Courier's Capsule
Akrasan Squire
Bone Splinters
Dispeller's Capsule
Godtoucher
Cathartic Adept
Blightning
Lightning Talons
Angelsong
Seaside Citadel
Filigree Sages
Etherium Astrolabe
--> Scourglass
Plains

I think this is the best card in the pack, its a house in esper and pretty good in other combinations as well.

Pack 1 pick 2:
Resounding Thunder
Call to Heel
Yoked Plowbeast
Dregscape Zombie
Kederekt Creeper
Savage Hunger
Shadowfeed
Tidehollow Strix
Kathari Screecher
Soul's Grace
Rhox Charger
--> Rhox War Monk
Kiss of the Amesha
Forest


Tough pack the kiss is not quite as strong as the monk, thunder or charger, I think the charger and thunder are normally higher picks than the monk this early but with what I already have, the strix is also to weak to take even if it fits the esper gambit best. I felt the monk could easily be splashed in esper and is fine in 5cc my two most sucessful archtypes for this format.

Pack 1 pick 3:
Yoked Plowbeast
Dregscape Zombie
Kederekt Creeper
Savage Hunger
Ridge Rannet
Courier's Capsule
--> Sanctum Gargoyle
Rip-Clan Crasher
Tortoise Formation
Lush Growth
Dragon's Herald
Covenant of Minds
Forest

With out the first pick scourglass I am not sure what i take here between the minds and the gargoyle but with the glass I think the gargoyle wins out.

Pack 1 pick 4:
--> Courier's Capsule
Yoked Plowbeast
Banewasp Affliction
Deft Duelist
Obelisk of Grixis
Blister Beetle
Gift of the Gargantuan (FOIL)
Spell Snip
Dispeller's Capsule
Volcanic Submersion
Mighty Emergence
Island

Best card in pack and it fits our plan

Pack 1 pick 5:
Jungle Weaver
Thorn-Thrash Viashino
Resounding Scream
Bloodthorn Taunter
Knight of the Skyward Eye
Cavern Thoctar
Cancel
Obelisk of Jund
--> Esper Battlemage
Kiss of the Amesha
Plains

I really want the kiss also but overall I felt the esper battlemage was just a little stonger

Pack 1 pick 6:
Steelclad Serpent
Marble Chalice
--> Viscera Dragger
Obelisk of Esper
Godtoucher
Gustrider Exuberant
Resounding Wave
Blightning
Exuberant Firestoker
Plains

Happy about this

Deathgreeter
Cancel
Obelisk of Jund
Volcanic Submersion
Rakeclaw Gargantuan
Onyx Goblet
Spell Snip
--> Esper Battlemage
Metallurgeon

Im a big fan of the battlemage I think its the stongest card here

Pack 2 pick 3:
Mosstodon
Goblin Mountaineer

Incurable Ogre
Esper Panorama
Executioner's Capsule
Carrion Thrash
Vithian Stinger
Gift of the Gargantuan
Puppet Conjurer
Behemoth's Herald
Ethersworn Canonist
Mountain

This is a tough decision e-capsule or gargoyle, with the glass I think the gargoyle wins out as I also have a warp as well already so im not in to desperate a need of removal, though either seems good.

Pack 2 pick 4:
Viashino Skeleton

Dreg Reaver

Pack 2 pick 9:
Onyx Goblet

Matca Rioters
Bone Saw
Worldly Counsel

Salvage Slasher
Brackwater Elemental
Exploding Borders
Knotvine Mystic
Manaforce Mace
Aerie Mystics
Cliffrunner Behemoth
Swamp

Im pretty sure I ended up playing the guy I was feeding in finals he had a very good gw deck and the behemoth almost got the better of me in three close games, maybe i should have hated it instead of taking an unimpressive strix with so little life gain.

Pack 3 pick 2:
--> Drag Down
Aven Trailblazer
Toxic Iguanar
Traumatic Visions
Mana Cylix
Court Homunculus
Molten Frame
Infectious Horror
Rhox Bodyguard
Wandering Goblins
Shard Convergence
Celestial Purge
Shambling Remains
Swamp

This was another tough call, in the end i decided to take the gamble on being able to pick up some fixers later as the drag down is so good

Pack 3 pick 3:
Kranioceros
--> Faerie Mechanist
Absorb Vis
Valeron Outlander
Sylvan Bounty
Maniacal Rage
Rotting Rats
Goblin Outlander
Court Homunculus
Filigree Fracture

Pack 3 pick 6:
Pestilent Kathari
Parasitic Strix
Bone Saw
Worldly Counsel
Might of Alara
Salvage Slasher
--> Brackwater Elemental
Dragonsoul Knight
Sludge Strider
Plains

This guy is very underated in my opinion hes a great defensive body, vs early fatties throcar, monk etc for blue to drop down early or a way of pushing through extra damage in a race

Pack 3 pick 7:
--> Esper Cormorants
Parasitic Strix
Kaleidostone
Constricting Tendrils
Tukatongue Thallid

wow. Again i preface this by saying im not the most experienced guy with this format, but it seems to me you made AT LEAST 2 really poor picks.

How on earth do you take a second sanctum gargoyle over a recursive seal of doom? You have a gargoyle to get back the seal, its like.... really good. Makes your opponent play differently.

I might have hatedrafted the fallout. It kills close to half your deck roughly, but it turns out it isnt that bad.

I feel as though with the first pick you made, you should FOR SURE take kiss the amesha. Slow the pace down, draw some friggen cards, gain some life, and draft some fliers.

I will agree with that.

Sanctum Gargoyle is MUCH better then e capsule. Its the best card in esper, and since trostky1 was in esper, he should take it over anything that isnt a bomb rare/unccomon.

The more gargoyles you get, the better your deck is going to be.
